Today's video features Glenn Miller and His Orchestra performing "People Like You and Me" along with the Modernaires.  This clip is from the 1942 film "Orchestra Wives" which was also the second, and last, movie to feature Glenn Miller.

Orchestra Wives was released at the height of the "Miller Craze" and included the classics: "(I've Got a Gal in) Kalamazoo", "At Last", "Serenade in Blue", as well as the song featured today, "People Like You and Me".

This movie finished up production just months before Miller announced he would be joining the Armed Forces.  Also, if you look hard enough, you'll notice a young Jackie Gleason portraying the band's bass player in this clip.
